Best coq au vin in Manhattan
I would prefer something cozy and romantic. Price not terribly important, i already have a reservation at DB Moderne, but would prefer something more charming.
L'Absinthe has a Coq Au Vin, probably a bit more romantic than DBBM. Also Le Veau d'Or, as classic old-school French a place as you'll find, if that's the kind "romantic" you're looking for.
If you're willing to drop the "au vin" part, the chicken-for-two at Marc Forgione is a thing of beauty, and what's more romantic than sharing a chicken? The ambience cozy / dark but neighborhoody. Depends on your definition of "romantic" if it fits the bill, I guess.

I'm a huge fan of the coq au vin at Les Halles. Not sure it fits the "cozy & romantic" bill but I've never had a richer more savory base.
